New reporting technique contrived to cover crimes of illegals
This news report in Monday’s edition of the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) covers the conviction of a monster. It’s headlined, “Phoenix man convicted in killing of brother, 6-year-old nephew.”
We read that after rejecting the defense’s preposterous claims of mental illness, jurors returned a verdict in the 2010 premeditated murder trial of Christopher Licon.
The name of the judge is included, and the additional charges of kidnapping, burglary and tampering with evidence are all there. We know that he murdered his brother, Angel Jaquez.Licon, 27.
Incredibly this creature returned the next day to assassinate his 6-year-old nephew, Xavier Daniel Jaquez, the sole witness to his father’s murder.
Christopher Licon shot both his own brother and young nephew in the back of the head. The child was taken by force and killed in an alley behind his mother’s home. His body was found there by a garbage truck driver the following morning. When arrested, Licon had previous drug warrants pending. Phoenix Police described him as “an extreme danger to the public.”
While in jail, Licon was accused of assaulting a corrections officer. But the reporting team, using a technique reminiscent of Tom Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities,” was quick to include his status as an “honor student.” He just might qualify for an acting scholarship, based on his feigned call to police saying he had discovered his brother’s dead body when he returned home from school.
Missing from the fact-filled report is Christopher Licon‘s status. He may be a U.S. citizen, but we’ll never know, since that information is magically excised from news coverage these days. It’s either too politically incorrect or inflammatory. But according to the left’s latest reporting methods, it’s definitely none of our business.
